Mayor Coleman’s statement on vote to develop historic Dayton’s Bluff property

Mayor Chris Coleman today (October 12, 2016)  released the following statement regarding the Housing and Redevelopment Authority’s vote to convey a formerly vacant property in Dayton’s Bluff to a developer for rehabilitation:

“The vote to convey this formerly vacant building, combined with investment in 22 additional vacant properties that have been or will be rehabilitated in the historic Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood, speaks volumes to the steps we have taken around historic preservation in Saint Paul and our longstanding commitment to investing on the East Side. It is clear that this area is seeing a major transformation through the rehabilitation of these properties—and the nearly $4 million in East Side investment through this work—over the past three years.

"The Housing and Redevelopment Authority has worked closely with community partners and city staff over the last three years, and this is quite a milestone to celebrate.”
